About Us

The Justice Information Resource Network (JIRN) is a national non-profit and resource center for researchers, analysts, journalists, and practitioners of justice research. We produce nonpartisan, reputable, and comprehensive research exploring today’s crucial issues across the justice spectrum.

JIRN provides access to research, learning programs, and networking opportunities tailored for justice researchers. At JIRN, we empower our members to achieve more by providing resources tailored to their needs.

With our partners, we also conduct justice research. We provide analyses of crucial issues and their effects across the justice system. We also analyze issues at the State & Federal level to assess today’s pressing societal challenges.

Our Executive Committee, comprised of a president, vice president, secretary/treasurer, and three delegates, is the elected governing body of the organization. Together with our Executive Director, they lead the organization.
